During their General Session on Feb. 26, the Board of Trustees approved a six percent increase for tuition, room and board, and mandatory fees for the 2011-2012 academic year in a decision that Board of Trustees Chair Molly Mahoney Matthews described as following a “difficult discussion.”
Allow me to apologize in advance, because most of what you’re about to read will not be good news. There will be a tuition increase this year – likely around six percent for in-state and an equal dollar amount for out-of-state.
With the continuation of tough financial times and the related difficulties of budget planning, St. Mary’s College tuition is most likely to increase once again this semester. How much of an increase, however, is currently up in the air.
